Wei is a major source of important ores and minerals including iron, gold, copper and titanium. The capital of Wei
is Vandannis City, located on the planet's southern continent.

[3025] Recent intelligence pinpoints Wei as the site of a one-time Star League repository for nerve gas agents,
but the exact location of the complex has not yet been determined. Though the Capellan government does not
acknowledge the repository's existence, Liao military intelligence regards the site as a potential military advantage
because the threat that they might unleash the antique nerve gas against an enemy could be as effective as if they
actually did so. Capellan agents have, therefore, spread rumors about the repository despite the government's
official disclaimers.

[3029] When the armies of the Federated Suns invaded Wei during the Forth Succession War, the Capellan
forces used the nerve gas against the Davion forces. Several hundred Davion troops succumbed to the poison,
though luckily for the Davion forces it was was discovered to be UrbStyc-C, a poison designed for easy cleanup.

[3132] The planet Wei started as an agricultural world, supplying worlds around it with the necessities of life.
What it became was a repository for nerve gas agents for the Star League and then the Capellan Confederation.
Certain plants were discovered to produce chemical compounds that, when combined, produced deadly nerve
agents.

Wei has one very large continent, Province, which covers almost 33 percent of the planet’s surface. It is centered
in the equatorial region and extends from the northern hemisphere southeast to the southern hemisphere. It is in
the southern reaches of Province that the poison-producing plants are grown. The planetary capital, Vandannis
City, is located in Vandannis Valley, a very large valley in the center of the continent. Here the infamous Wei gas
(its military designation: UrbStryc-A) was manufactured in a secret base located at Bonganville. Wei gas was
designed to kill immediately and for easy cleanup. During the Fourth Succession War, Davion forces found out
about this gas the hard way. Even those secure in their tanks or BattleMechs found that the gas trapped in air
filters would evaporate due to the heat, then release itself as minute particles into the air circulation system. In the
end, Wei gas cost the invaders two full battalions of troops.

During the Capellan–St. Ives war Wei gas was used by Thuggee Cult terrorists, this time in major population
centers of St. Ives, including the capital city, Milos, and Indicass. Thousands died as a result of the gas. That was
only a prelude to what the gas would do during the Jihad. Dozens of worlds would eventually be hit with
UrbStryc-A, costing tens of millions of lives (the true number will probably never be known). The major cities of
Wei itself were attacked with the UrbStryc-A gas, eradicating half the planet’s population.

Like Kansu, Wei serves as a reminder of the horrors of the Jihad. The population did not resist when Stone
asked for Wei to be included in The Republic.

[3132] Wei was originally part of the Capellan Confederation until the creation of The Republic. Wei became
part of Prefecture V under the control of The Republic. After the fall of the HPG Network Fortress Republic was
created and many of the worlds under its control were set free.
[3135] Wei was released from official control of The Republic.

After being released from The Republic, Wei became part of the Capellan Confederation, House Liao.
